The hearing will be held in the Louisiana Retirement Systems Building Board Room, 8401 United Plaza, 4th Floor, Baton Rouge, Louisiana on August 8, 2002 at 9:00 a.m.

This public hearing will be conducted in accordance with the procedural requirements set forth in R.S. 18:1511.4C, provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act and in conformity with the Rules adopted by the Board, a copy of which is enclosed. At the conclusion of this public hearing, the Board may impose additional civil sanctions of up to $10,000 as per R.S. 18:1505.4A(4)(b).

If you desire the attendance of any witnesses, the Board can issue subpoenas for those witnesses. In order to have subpoenas issued you must, at least ten (10) days in advance of the hearing, supply the names and addresses of the persons to be subpoenaed and, if you would like the witnesses to produce documentation at the hearing, state in detail the document(s) to be produced and the reasons that the production of the documentation will be relevant and material.
